Is it true that orange-ish roses are less favored? If yes, why?

I recently read a few remarks, here and there, that seemed to indicate a significant number of people dislike orange roses. I wonder why. Some of those that have a sunset appearance - like Rosie the Riveter or Easy Does It - look absolutely stunning to me.

I know some people are not crazy about reds because they may come across too stereotypical or just plain Knock Out (LOL). But orange roses seem so unique, earthy and artistic.

So those of you who don't exactly favor oranges, would you care to share reasons behind your ...avoidance? :)
